In this page, i'll try to make your Arch installation on HP Pavillion dv1000 series as easy as i can, If you have something to add please contribute to this page
What does work?
Wifi using ipw2200 drivers
Touchpad using synaptics drivers
Remote Control, when you'll have ur multimedia keys working, Remote control works out of the box
suspend to ram/swap
Texas Intrument card reader
What does not work?
Boot with your Arch CD without any option, u do not need acpi=off for this laptop, Partition the way you like but leave 204MB+ of free space unpartioned in order to install Quickplay later, You may need to follow any Installation guide on the wiki
Graphic Card and Xorg
HP Pavilion dv1000 have an i810 compatible Video card, so you must have the package
xf86-video-i810 and u must use i810 as Driver, your Device section should look like this
Section "Device" Identifier "Intel Corporation 82852/855GM Integrated Graphics Device Number 1" Driver "i810" # xf86-video-i810 Package BusID "PCI:0:2:0" # Reported by lspci VideoRam 65536 # This will force Xorg to allocate 65Mb for the video card Screen 0 EndSection
The monitor runs under resolution 1280x768 I achieved 75Hz with my configurations which i think the best you can achieve with this monitor,your monitor section should look like this:
Section "Monitor" Identifier "LCD Monitor" Option "DPMS" HorizSync 28.0 - 96.0 VertRefresh 50.0 - 75.0 UseModes "Mode 1280 x 768 @ 75 Hz" EndSection Section "Modes" Identifier "Mode 1280 x 768 @ 75 Hz" # 1280x768 @ 75.00 Hz (GTF) hsync: 60.15 kHz; pclk: 102.98 MHz Modeline "1280x768_75.00" 102.98 1280 1360 1496 1712 768 769 772 802 -HSync +Vsync EndSection
For a complete xorg.conf file please use Mine and Email me in case you made any improvements, Also you can share your xorg.conf in the section below
You have to use the
ipw2200 driver; Arch stock kernel has it enabled, but you still need the firmware package .
The sound should work out of the box.
